Great win, only somewhat of a flag:

Basically a 7.5 man rotation.

Still need, at least, one more bench guy to show a pulse. Little... Metu... Goodwin...

Even so though, no one played crazy minutes, but the blowout is a big factor in that.

Did anybody catch Reggie say that the Suns are looking for a wing at the trade deadline and not a point guard?!?

Good ball movement most of the time. I still don’t like the lack of urgency or killer instinct to put them away, instead some lazy plays by Book and KD. Kd still wanted to go iso. Book still wanted to dribble slowly up the court.

Beal was great. Bol was impactful.

Yeah, I mentioned it earlier in the thread. They need some size and shooting.

Looks like a great win. Ill watch the replay.

Lebron is going to get his coach fired.

I honestly think it was more the lakers playing like crap.

suns still sloppy as hell with ball.
We had 12 turnovers the entire game - benched our starters with 4 minutes to go and still won by 18 pts on the road against a team who's been kicking the crap out of us this year - lol I'm gonna enjoy this one my man

Good to see some much needed changes in the gameplan. Much heavier focus on getting 3 point shots up (even if some of them weren't great looks), sub pattern in the 2nd half changed to have Book and KD start the 4th, Beal being the one popping up to nail any time the Lakers tried to trap/double team.

Would still like to see them push the pace a bit more and get a couple other guys going but still positive improvements on the above.

Edit: Oh and they had lots of different people bring the ball up the floor to distribute the load.
